Lombardy - Lake Como Area:
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquility and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, in spring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a nice time in the Apartment and in Lake Como!
Lake Como was very beautiful as expected and the view from the apartment was spectacular, we were really happy about that. Bellano as a town was maybe a bit too quiet for us, since we would have liked to walk to restaurants more.
We found the way to the apartment quite well, allthough we missed the right exit to Bellano from the highway the first time....
What we enjoyed most in Como was the beautiful scenery, cyckling, paddling and we did a short hike in the mountains as well. As we had teenagers in the family, we did not see so many sights, but we did more sports and other activities.
Thanks for all our help with renting the apartment, all and all it was a pleasant experience to deal with all of you.
